I taught the Relief Society (women’s group) lesson on Sunday and it was about Protection from Pornography. I am over the teachers and arranged it so that I could teach the lesson. I love teaching about pornography and wanted to make sure the women left with useful tools and information to help them be WARRIORS in their homes.
Requests to share
I got a lot of great feedback about my lesson. I also had a lot of requests from friends that live far away for my notes. I decided to record my lesson, so that everyone can join in the fight.
